UFC legend Don Frye gets KO’d in hotel lobby
It’s not very often you get to see a former UFC fighter get into a street fight. It’s even less often they end up losing the fight. The UFC fighter is of course the legend and now Hall of Famer, Don ‘The Predator’ Frye.
If you recognize some other familiar faces in this YouTube video it’s not just your imagination. It’s actually the crew from the reality show ‘Dog the Bounty Hunter’ including the guy teeing off on Don Frye. His name is Sonny Westbrook who’s apparently a boxing trainer and most likely a former fighter himself (no kidding).
Also involved is Dog Chapman’s son and show regular Leland, a fighter himself, who is seen towards the end of the video keeping Frye from continuing the fight after getting dropped.
It’s unclear what started this beef in the middle of a hotel lobby. The video starts with Sonny on the ground getting back to his feet. Most likely either pushed down or knocked down by Frye. He still had some fight left in him though as he gets back to his feet and starts teeing off on Frye who doesn’t have much of an answer. The scuffle ends pretty quickly after Sonny lands a huge left hand which sends Frye to the ground.
Sonny tries to continue pummeling Frye even after he hits the deck but is pulled off by a bystander. “He’s out, he’s out,” the bystander tells him in an attempt to cool him off and end the confrontation. Frye being the warrior that he is trying to get back to his feet and continue the fight but is held back by Leland Chapman.
The video ends with Frye staring him down wanting another go at it but is thankfully held back by bystanders. You can’t win ‘em all.
